Amazon Neptune Achieves HIPAA Eligibility

Posted on: Sep 12, 2018

Amazon Neptune is now a HIPAA Eligible Service and has been added to the AWS Business Associate Addendum (BAA).

Amazon Neptune is a fast, reliable, fully-managed graph database service that makes it easy to build and run applications that work with highly connected datasets and supports the popular graph models Property Graph and W3C's RDF. If you have a BAA in place with AWS, you can immediately start using Amazon Neptune to build applications using Apache TinkerPop Gremlin or SPARQL queries that efficiently navigate highly connected datasets containing protected health information (PHI). If you do not have a BAA in place with AWS or have any other questions about running HIPAA-regulated workloads on AWS, please contact us.

HIPAA Eligibility applies to all AWS Regions where Amazon Neptune is available. See the Architecting for HIPAA Security and Compliance on Amazon Web Services Whitepaper for information and best practices about how to configure AWS HIPAA Eligible Services to store, process, and transmit protected health information (PHI).

There is no additional charge for using Amazon Neptune with HIPAA eligibility. Visit the website to learn more about Amazon Neptune.
